Peter Wright and Fallon Sherrock will face off again at the Grand Slam of Darts

Fallon Sherrock will face Peter Wright on the opening night of the 2022 Grand Slam of Darts in a rematch of last year’s thrilling quarter-final between the pair.

Reigning champion and world No 1 Gerwyn Price heads up an enticing draw for the tournament, which gets under way live on Sky Sports on Saturday, with the Welshman in Group A alongside Dave Chisnall, Raymond van Barneveld and Ted Evetts.

Three-time champion Michael van Gerwen is also part of a star-studded 32-player draw, which will see the top two from each of the eight groups advance to the knockout stages at Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton, with the winner taking home the coveted Eric Bristow Trophy and £150,000.

Sherrock enhanced her reputation at last year’s Grand Slam as she advanced through the group stage before knocking out Mensur Suljovic to set up a quarter-final with Wright, in which the two-time world champion came through 16-13 before going on to lose in the final for the third time.
